Patong Police were called to the island’s busiest party street at 7am.

“British national Joshua Luca James Lomas-Mears, 24, was arguing with a woman, and four tourists who saw the incident tried to intervene,” Patong Police Chief Col Tassanai Orarigadech told The Phuket News today (Sept 13).

Col Tassanai identified the four “Good Samaritans” as Bangladeshi national Mohannad Adsamad Ali, 27; British nationals Samad Ahmed Rahman, 28, and Mizanur Rahman, 25; and Ibthayhaj Shadiqul Gani, a 25-year-old carrying a Bangladeshi passport identifying him as a British national from London.

“They asked Mr Lomas-Mears what had happened, but he was so angry that he started fighting with the four tourists,” Col Tassanai explained.

“Two motorbikes and a car nearby were damaged,” he added.

All five were brought under control and taken to Patong Police Station.

“The five tourists confessed that they were all drunk and could not control themselves, and so they were fighting,” Col Tassanai said.

They were all charged for the drunken brawl and fined B3,000 each, Col Tassanai confirmed.

“They also agreed to pay for damage to vehicles at the scene. Thongchai Patthamalee was paid B3,000 and Amporn Changruang was paid B1,000 for damage to their motorbikes,” Col Tassanai said.

“Jaruwan Sornjit was paid B5,000 for damage to her car,” he added.

Col Tassanai and the police report did not clarify whether either Ms Amporn or Ms Jaruwan was the woman that Mr Lomas-Mears was arguing with – or what the Brit was fighting with the woman about.

Patong police were called at 7 AM (!) to the Island'd busiest party street!

It is all the fault of the Patong Police.

If the Patong police enforce the bar/club closing time law of 01:00 AM, than there are no drunk 'low quality' tourists out there at 07:00 AM.

Thai's pay baht 500 for fighting and tourists pay 3000 baht. Welcome to the land of bias, corruption and inequality where the Thai police will exploit you for every cent they can. 

For every 3000 baht fine that was paid, the Thai police pocket 2,500 baht.
